Happy Canada Day.

This year isn’t like other years. But even these challenging times are a good opportunity to think about what it means to be Canadian. I’m inviting you. whoever and wherever you are, to take part in all the great activities we have planned. Today, Canada’s history-our values, our talents and our creativity-are on display for the whole world. Today is our day-Happy Canada Day!”

-The Honorable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Canadian Heritage.

Dear Bloggers and friends,

This is not our usual Canada Day as Canada Day celebrations come during a pandemic. However, we can say we are celebrating pandemic-friendly Canada Day. Safety is the top priority, as social distancing protocols are in place and no large gatherings are allowed. This does not mean we are not going to have fun. Virtual celebrations will be streamed online and we’ll enjoy virtual fireworks. We may be apart physically but we’re finding new ways to be together virtually. Happy Canada Day to all!!!

July 1st is the 153 anniversary of the Confederation. We also salute the key role of the Metis’ Nation in bringing Manitoba into the Confederation 150 years ago.

Don’t be fooled by my beauty, the light of my face comes from the candle of my spirit.” Rumi
We celebrate the 40th anniversary of “O’Canada” as our official National Anthem.

I am a free lance writer who loves to write on social issues in particular. I am a house wife and my husband Dr. Shams Iqbal offers all the support and encouragement so that I can pursue my passion for authorship and other cause which is dear to me. My lifelong mission in life is to offer my support for the police officers who need to be supported and protected by general public like us. My inspiration to do this comes from my personal experiences of some of the greatest police officers whom I have witnessed do great deeds for the good of humanity. I am so inspired and fascinated to support this law enforcement group. On the other hand I like music, movies specially classics, I am a fashion geek, English and American literature are my passions.
